  Abstract Objective: To observe the effect of combined acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula on the motor function and activities of daily living (ADL) of post-stroke patients and further evaluate the resultant clinical efficacy. Methods: A total of 80 acute stroke patients were randomly divided into a control group (40 cases) and an observation group (40 cases). Conventional Western medicine management was employed in the control group, while additional acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula were employed in the observation group. After completing the sessions of treatment, changes of the motor function(using the US National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, NIHSS) and activities of daily living (using Barthel Index) were measured. Results: The total effective rate in the observation group was 87.5 %, versus 62.5 % in the control group, showing a statistical difference (P<0.05). After the treatment, the motor function and activities of daily living of patients in both groups were markedly improved (P<0.05), and those in the observation group presented with a better result (P<0.05). Conclusion: Conventional Western medicine management coupled with acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula are beneficial to the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with cerebral infarction.
